Forum: announcements Subject: Orphan Works lawsuit appeal filed

The good folks at Stanford Center for Internet and Society has helped file the appeal of Kahle v. Ashcroft.

This suit is about "orphan works", or works that are so out of print that often the publisher can not be found, but under the new copyright laws, these works are still under copyright.

This suit seeks to affirm that libraries in the digital world can have out-of-print works on their shelves, just as we had on the shelves of the libraries we grew up with.

Lets hope sanity prevails and we protect our libraries.
